Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, notifying him that the thousands of documents he tried to hide in the Russia investigation are ready to be released to the public.
The documents include the transcripts of 53 individuals who were questioned by Schiff’s committee during the Russian collusion probe, but Adam Schiff has delayed the public release of the information since conducting the multitude of interviews several years ago.
However, with this added pressure from the Director of National Intelligence, the documents are expected to be released by Adam Schiff in just a matter of days.
Check out what the Washington Examiner reported below:
DNI TO SCHIFF: THE TRANSCRIPTS ARE READY TO RELEASE. A big development in the fight over 53 secret interviews the House Intelligence Committee conducted during its Trump-Russia investigation. Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell has sent a letter to chairman Adam Schiff notifying him that transcripts of all 53 interviews, over 6,000 pages in all, have been cleared for public release. “All of the transcripts, with our required redactions, can be released to the public without any concerns of disclosing classified material,” Grenell wrote to Schiff in a letter dated May 4.
The Intel Committee did the first probe into Russia’s 2016 campaign interference and allegations of Trump-Russia collusion. Even today, its findings make up most of what we know about the affair. As part of that investigation — it was run by then-majority Republicans — the committee interviewed some key witnesses in the Trump-Russia matter: Donald Trump Jr., Steve Bannon, Andrew McCabe, Sally Yates, Michael Cohen, Hope Hicks, and many more.
Both President Trump and a number of high ranking Republican lawmakers have expanded efforts to get the House Intelligence Committee Chairman to release the information in recent weeks, which they believe may contain incriminating information against the FBI and members of Congress.
